What is the weather like in Kalaheo in early to mid April? Is there a lot of rain on this part of the island? What about wind?

Aloha from Kaua'i!

Kaua'i has a lot of "micro-climates" - and Kalaheo, although only about 10 minutes from where I live (between Koloa and Po'ipu Beach) is one of them.....it is a generally cooler and rainier area.....I have lots of friends who live in Kalaheo and it seems that when they come to exercise class here in Po'ipu - they are always saying it was raining at home - but not here!

As far as wind, it doesn't get any more wind than we do here in Po'ipu in general - which is to say, there are times of the year (this week for instance) where it has been very windy all over the island - Kalaheo is no more or less than any (unless you are in one of the valley areas).

Kalaheo is a wonderful area to stay IMO - it is primarily residential, rather than vacation rentals and only about a 10 minute drive to the beaches here in the Po'ipu area.

But yes, they do tend to get more rain there - usually in the evenings and early mornings hours in particular.

Kalaheo is one of my favorite areas of the island. We stay there often - really - often! It is lush and gorgeous, very scenic. Koloagirl has given you the info. It does commonly rain in the night and more often than Poipu. That is why it is so beautiful and tropical. Rain in Hawaii is not rain like we get here at home - you can actually enjoy it! And certainly enjoy the results! So not to worry.

April should be wonderful there. It is an excellent location for staying on island.

When you identify a specific spot we can give you more feedback. That area is highly variable over a couple of miles. If you are inland from the main highway, it can be pretty wet at times. Other spots like around the Kukiolono golf course can be quite windy. Really depends on just where you are.

Thank you so much for all your comments. This area sounds like a good place to keep in mind. The weather map is helpful.

In the meantime, I have seen that my rewards program is offering a good deal on a place in Wailua.

Does anybody know about the weather, and tourist activities in this area for April?
